- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan or line with parchment paper.
- Combine the whole wheat pastry flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy, about 3 to five minutes. Add in the pumpkin, beat well. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg. Gradually beat in the flour mixture and the 2 teaspoons of water. Stir in 2 cups of chocolate chips and then ad more to your liking.
- Spread the dough out into the prepared pan. Bake for 18 to 25 minutes, just until set in the center. Don’t over-bake because bars will firm up as they cool, if anything undercook. If the cookies get too cooked they will become cakey. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.
